angulatus Saussure, 1860: 336  -337, fig. 25 [ Eurydesmus  ].

Selon toute probabilité, le Brésil. Unspecified number of ♀.

The pagination of the publication is faulty and reads 536- 537. Saussure & Humbert (1872) gave the locality as “République Argentine” and indicated that the original description was based on a single dried specimen. The MHNG collection contains two ♂ specimens labelled “Amérique mérid.” in alcohol, with a broken pair of gonopods in a separate vial, under the name Eurydesmus angulatus  . One of these is presumably the specimen used by Carl (1903) to describe and illustrate the gonopod. The whereabouts of the ♀ holotype is unknown. The NHMW collection includes a ♀ specimen from Rio de Janeiro determined by Humbert & Saussure as E. angulatus  (Inventory number 3288, Acquisition number 1866.I.8); according to a label in the jar this specimen was subsequently identified as E. zebratus (Gervais, 1836)  by Hoffman in 1980.
